AMBIVERT

Somewhere on the spectrum between an introvert and and extrovert lays the ambivert. This is where we, OLDER live. We are happy to engage madly in deep and meaningful conversation with anyone about anything. Just not small talk. One can't do that for more than a few minutes before it actually becomes painful. Seriously.

It's a perception though, isn't it.  What may be portrayed as 'anti social' behaviour, a term overused and bandied around the office, may just be an ambivert withdrawing from the mundane boredom of the people around them -- plenty of interesting things to say and do, just not to them.

LYRICS

Put her in a box with a bow on top
Sunny disposition, doesn't say a lot
Keeps her head down, doesn't make a fuss
Works very hard, not one of us
But where her mind goes
Nobody asks, nobody knows
She's such a strange one

She's antisocial, she don't fit in
A twisted enigma with a Cheshire grin

Tittle tattle chat over morning tea
Gets a little bored with the company
Stifles a yawn, gets a blank stare
She'd give her right arm not to be there
But where her mind goes
Nobody asks, nobody knows
She's such a strange one

She's antisocial, she don't fit in
A twisted enigma with a Cheshire grin

Oh their mundane world is shaken to the core
She's riding in the cart, apples on the floor

She's antisocial, she don't fit in
A twisted enigma with a Cheshire grin

Come Monday morning just gone 9,
ASBO smile, quite benign
Best not try to empathise
Keep it stuum, divert your eyes
Leave the crazy well alone,
Count the hours 'til she goes home
But maybe she's watching you,
Watching her, watching you

But where her mind goes
Nobody asks, nobody knows
She's such a strange one

She's antisocial, she don't fit in
A twisted enigma with a Cheshire grin
